Caregiver behaviors and resources influence child height-for-age in rural Chad. (1/65)

The purpose of this study was to identify caregiver characteristics that influence child nutritional status in rural Chad, when controlling for socioeconomic factors. Variables were classified according to the categories of a UNICEF model of care: caregiving behaviors, household food security, food and economic resources and resources for care and health resources. Sixty-four households with 98 children from ages 12 to 71 mo were part of this study. Caregivers were interviewed to collect information on number of pregnancies, child feeding and health practices, influence on decisions regarding child health and feeding, overall satisfaction with life, social support, workload, income, use of income, and household food expenditures and consumption. Household heads were questioned about household food production and other economic resources. Caregiver and household variables were classified as two sets of variables, and separate regression models were run for each of the two sets. Significant predictors of height-for-age were then combined in the same regression model. Caregiver influence on child-feeding decisions, level of satisfaction with life, willingness to seek advice during child illnesses, and the number of individuals available to assist with domestic tasks were the caregiver factors associated with children's height-for-age. Socioeconomic factors associated with children's height-for-age were the amount of harvested cereals, the sources of household income and the household being monogamous. When the caregiver and household socioeconomic factors were combined in the same model, they explained 54% of the variance in children's height-for-age, and their regression coefficients did not change or only slightly increased, except for caregiver's propensity to seek advice during child illnesses, which was no longer significant. These results indicate that caregiver characteristics influence children's nutritional status, even while controlling for the socioeconomic status of the household.  (+info)

First nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. (2/65)

Survey data are presented from a nationwide survey of the health of schoolchildren in Chad. The country was stratified into distinct ecological zones based on satellite sensor environmental data. Twenty schools were visited and 1024 children aged between 6 and 15 years were included in the study. The overall prevalence of stunting, underweight, anaemia and goitre was 18.7, 16.5, 25.1 and 23.3%, respectively. Schistosoma haematobium, Schistosoma mansoni and hookworm were the only helminth species found with prevalences of 13.2, 1 and 32.7%, respectively. A greater proportion of boys were stunted, underweight, anaemic and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than girls. Older children were more stunted, underweight and infected with S. haematobium and hookworm than younger children, but less anaemic. The prevalence of infection showed marked geographical heterogeneity, with hookworm prevalence being highest in the Sudanian and tropical zone, and S. haematobium being most prevalent in the Sahelian zone and the Logone and Chari basins in the west of the country. These data show that there is a high prevalence of helminth infection in Chad, but that treatment for S. haematobium and hookworm should be targeted to different geographical areas.  (+info)

Tolerability of doxycycline monohydrate salt vs. chloroquine-proguanil in malaria chemoprophylaxis. (3/65)

The resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to the chloroquine-proguanil association (C/P) as antimalarial chemoprophylaxis is becoming increasingly common in Africa. Daily oral doxycycline hyclate 100 mg is effective as malaria prophylaxis. But the hyclate salt's adverse effects combined with the capsule's galenic form are incompatible with good chemoprophylaxis compliance. We conducted a randomized group study of 522 French soldiers deployed in Gabon and Chad for 4 months to determine the tolerability of short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis with a 100-mg daily tablet of a monohydrate doxycycline salt compared with a daily C/P capsule. At days 7 and 120, compliance was better in the doxycycline group [respectively 98.5%vs. 73.9% (P < 0.001) and 90.5%vs. 74% (P < 0.001)]. No major event (evacuation, hospitalization) was related to the medications. Epigastralgia, diarrhoea, urticaria, mouth ulcers, sun sensitization and desquamation were significantly more frequent in the C/P group (P < 0.05). There was no statistical difference for malaria incidence, vertigo, nausea and hair loss. These results suggest that doxycycline monohydrate may be safely used in short-term malaria chemoprophylaxis. With the same efficacy as a hyclate doxycycline, doxycycline monohydrate could be a good chemoprophylaxis for short-term travellers at particular risk of C/P resistant P. falciparum malaria.  (+info)

Use of remote sensing and a geographical information system in a national helminth control programme in Chad. (4/65)

OBJECTIVE: To design and implement a rapid and valid epidemiological assessment of helminths among schoolchildren in Chad using ecological zones defined by remote sensing satellite sensor data and to investigate the environmental limits of helminth distribution. METHODS: Remote sensing proxy environmental data were used to define seven ecological zones in Chad. These were combined with population data in a geographical information system (GIS) in order to define a sampling protocol. On this basis, 20 schools were surveyed. Multilevel analysis, by means of generalized estimating equations to account for clustering at the school level, was used to investigate the relationship between infection patterns and key environmental variables. FINDINGS: In a sample of 1023 schoolchildren, 22.5% were infected with Schistosoma haematobium and 32.7% with hookworm. None were infected with Ascaris lumbricoides or Trichuris trichiura. The prevalence of S. haematobium and hookworm showed marked geographical heterogeneity and the observed patterns showed a close association with the defined ecological zones and significant relationships with environmental variables. These results contribute towards defining the thermal limits of geohelminth species. Predictions of infection prevalence were made for each school surveyed with the aid of models previously developed for Cameroon. These models correctly predicted that A. lumbricoides and T. trichiura would not occur in Chad but the predictions for S. haematobium were less reliable at the school level. CONCLUSION: GIS and remote sensing can play an important part in the rapid planning of helminth control programmes where little information on disease burden is available. Remote sensing prediction models can indicate patterns of geohelminth infection but can only identify potential areas of high risk for S. haematobium.  (+info)

Light and electronic observations on Henneguya ghaffari (Myxosporea, Bivalvulida) infecting the gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus (Pisces: Teleostei) from Chad and Senegal. (5/65)

Henneguya ghaffari Ali, 1999, described for the first time in Egypt, has been found on gills and intestine of Nile perch Lates niloticus L. from Chad and Senegal (Africa). It formed plasmodia which induced lesions of infected tissues. In fresh state, the spore body was ovoid and its size was 11.07 +/- 0.7 (range 11 to 13) x 7.7 +/- 0.4 (range 7 to 8) microm. The length of the caudal appendages was 44.2 +/- 1.7 (42 to 48) microm. The polar capsules were pyriform, of equal size, with the polar filament showing 4 coils, and measuring 3.17 +/- 0.1 (range 3 to 4) x 2.2 +/- 0.1 (range 1 to 2) microm. The total length of the spore was 55.73 +/- 1.7 (range 53 to 61) microm. At ultrastructural level, our results confirm that in Henneguya species, the sporoplasm is binucleate and the pansporaoblast is disporous.  (+info)

Health and equity impacts of a large oil project in Africa. (6/65)

A system of external reviewers was established by the World Bank Group to promote a thorough environmental and health impact assessment for the 3.5 billion US dollars Chad Oil Export Project, based on a loan request from Chad, Cameroon and a consortium of oil companies. The environmental and health assessment process showed evidence of its ability to minimize the number of deaths from malaria, traffic accidents and construction accidents and the occurrence of minor sexually transmitted diseases, diarrhoeal diseases and respiratory diseases; it also probably limited adverse impacts on wildlife and tropical ecology along the pipeline route. However, the system was unable to deal with the larger issues, which included: the intrinsic unsustainability of this kind of extraction project; its eventual contribution to large amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere; the lack of equity in sharing the risks, negative impacts, benefits and decision-making among the various participants in the project; and the possible acceleration of transmission of the AIDS virus into central Africa. Unfortunately, the international panel of experts appointed by the World Bank Group was largely ignored by the project proponents, and had little success in minimizing the most serious impacts or in improving the social equity of the project.  (+info)

Possible illnesses: assessing the health impacts of the Chad Pipeline Project. (7/65)

Health impact assessments associated with large-scale infrastructure projects, such as the Chad-Cameroon Petroleum Development and Pipeline Project, monitor pre-existing conditions and new diseases associated with particular industries or changes in social organization. This paper suggests that illness self-reports constitute a complementary set of benchmarks to measure the health impacts of these projects, and presents data gathered in ongoing household and health service surveys in Ngalaba, a village near a major oilfield in Chad. In an initial 16-week period of weekly data collection, 363 people reported few of the clinically chronic or asymptomatic conditions expected according to health transition theory, and the overall level of illness reporting was low. Illnesses often were described by symptoms or lay diagnoses. Health care practitioners were consulted rarely; when they were, resources for diagnosis and treatment were limited. Clinically acute, short-duration illnesses (e.g. parasitic infections, toothaches, or hernias) were experienced as chronic conditions and were reported week after week. The low levels of illness reporting and lack of clinically chronic conditions are not taken to mean that rural Chadians are healthy. Rather, the patterns of morbidity reflect a particular local ecology in which health services are organized and care dispensed in ways that limit the possibilities for illness in terms of types of illnesses that can be diagnosed and reported, forms illnesses take, and ways in which illnesses are experienced. Illness self-reports are useful adjuncts to "harder" biological measures in HIAs, particularly in the context of large-scale infrastructure projects with explicit development goals. Rather than providing data on the extent to which harm has been mitigated by corporate, state, and donor activities, self-reports show the possibilities of illness in local contexts.  (+info)

Community level risk factors for numbers of landmine victims in Chad and Thailand. (8/65)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine commonalities of landmine victim risk factors in two very different countries. DESIGN AND SETTING: Data on 249 communities in Chad and 530 in Thailand were collected during 2000-2001 as part of the Global Landmine Survey. Community level variables were analysed in a series of Poisson mixture models with number of landmine victims as the dependent variable. Models developed for each country were tested on the other to investigate similarities and robustness of identification of risk factors. MAIN RESULTS: Increased community level risk was associated with population size, closeness to another community with victims, emplacement in the previous two years, blocked water or pasture, and the proximity of unexploded ordnance or anti-tank mines. In Chad, risk factors tended to be more related to identifying communities that had crossed a threshold between near zero and moderate risk; Thailand, factors were more related to increases in victim rates. CONCLUSIONS: Current systems of collecting data on community characteristics and landmine victims can provide meaningful risk factor information. Remediation approaches that focus on blockage of important resources and areas of recent, high intensity conflicts may be the most beneficial in reducing the numbers of victims.  (+info)

Dakar/Accra, 23 June 2016 - Massive population displacements and insecurity in the Lake Chad basin are putting livelihoods and food security at high risk. In northeast Nigeria alone, the impact of the conflict on agriculture is estimated at USD 3.7 billion due to livestock losses and reduced agricultural production, destruction of irrigation and farming facilities, and collapse of extension services including veterinary health facilities.. In the affected areas, civilians bear the burden of insecurity. Displaced people lost their assets and most of them rely on the limited resources of host communities, who themselves have suffered from the disruption of agricultural activities and of transhumance flows over the past few years. Staple food prices have also increased, with rises up to 50 to 100 percent reported in some areas of Borno State.. As of June 2016, 4.6 million people are severely food insecure in the Lake Chad basin, of which 65 percent are located in Northeast Nigeria, especially in ...
Tens of thousands of people forcibly evicted from their homes since 2008 without due process or adequate compensation in Chads capital NDjamena have been left homeless and jobless, Amnesty International said in a short report released today in NDjamena.. The 12-page document No Homes, No Justice, No Dignity: Victims of forced evictions in Chad calls on the Chadian government to immediately stop carrying out forced evictions and ensure that all victims have access to justice including fair compensation.. Some of the victims of these forced evictions have been living in makeshift shacks for the past three years, said Christian Mukosa, Amnesty Internationals Chad researcher. Others have had to move back to their villages of origin.. Very few families have been compensated for their losses. Where court decisions have ruled in favour of the victims, they have rarely been enforced.. The authorities first began forced evictions in NDjamena in February 2008. National and municipal authorities ...
This study was carried out to identify and assess the water quality of the Chari River. The Chari, 1200 km long, is Chads major water source. Municipal sewage, industrial wastewater discharge, and seasonal run-off from agriculture are regularly fed into the river. Several trace metals such as Cu, Zn, Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn, and Cd, were measured in different sampling stations located along the Chari River at NDjamena in different campaigns from 2008 to 2010. Overall, manganese, zinc, chromium, and copper concentration levels were mainly in the range of the permissible limits prescribed by WHO guidelines (WHO 2011). Nickel, iron, and cadmium concentrations were still high. This preliminary study allowed us to identify the magnitude of toxic pollutants, which are responsible for Chari River water contamination in the study area. This study revealed that urgent measures must be taken to protect the local people from health problems resulting from high concentrations of heavy metals.
BACKGROUND: Circumsporozoite protein (CS) is the antigenic target for RTS,S, the most advanced malaria vaccine to date. Heterologous prime-boost with the viral vectors simian adenovirus 63 (ChAd63)-modified vaccinia virus Ankara (MVA) is the most potent inducer of T-cells in humans, demonstrating significant efficacy when expressing the preerythrocytic antigen insert multiple epitope-thrombospondin-related adhesion protein (ME-TRAP). We hypothesized that ChAd63-MVA containing CS may result in a significant clinical protective efficacy. METHODS: We conducted an open-label, 2-site, partially randomized Plasmodium falciparum sporozoite controlled human malaria infection (CHMI) study to compare the clinical efficacy of ChAd63-MVA CS with ChAd63-MVA ME-TRAP. RESULTS: One of 15 vaccinees (7%) receiving ChAd63-MVA CS and 2 of 15 (13%) receiving ChAd63-MVA ME-TRAP achieved sterile protection after CHMI. Three of 15 vaccinees (20%) receiving ChAd63-MVA CS and 5 of 15 (33%) receiving ChAd63-MVA ME-TRAP

There are many place names containing the element chad or something similar. In many cases, reference to the early forms of the name suggests that the derivation is not from the name Chad, but from some other word. It is possible that even where a name might reasonably be thought to derive from Chad that the individual is some other of the same name. Hence great caution needs to be exercised in explaining ancient toponyms by reference to St Chad. That being said, a township located outside Ladysmith, Kwa-Zulu Natal is named St. Chads after an Anglican Mission in the area.[21]. One toponym with a good claim to derivation from the saints name is Chadkirk Chapel in Romiley, Greater Manchester, which dates back to the 14th century - although the site is much older, possibly dating back to the 7th century when it is believed St Chad visited to bless the well there. Cameron[22] points out that -kirk toponyms more frequently incorporate the name of the dedicatee, rather than the patron, so there is ...

The music group Chari Jazz formed in 1964 and initiated Chads modern music scene. Later, more renowned groups such as African Melody and International Challal attempted to mix modernity and tradition. Popular groups such as Tibesti have clung faster to their heritage by drawing on sai, a traditional style of music from southern Chad. The people of Chad have customarily disdained modern music. However, in 1995 greater interest has developed and fostered the distribution of CDs and audio cassettes featuring Chadian artists. Piracy and a lack of legal protections for artists rights remain problems to further development of the Chadian music industry.[79][80]. Millet is the staple food throughout Chad. It is used to make balls of paste that are dipped in sauces. In the north this dish is known as alysh; in the south, as biya.

Chad is of primordial importance in Nigerias foreign policy consideration for many reasons. In this way, Nigeria has been put in a position where she had to monitor and react to the day-to-day situational fact of the Chadian crisis. Chad might have not been of importance as such had there been no factor of geographical proximity. With the intensification of the war, there has been an atmosphere of insecurity, poverty and economic development in Chad itself, a situation which obliged many Chadian refugees to seek survival in Nigeria. ...

Chad has known human habitation since time immemorial. The oldest humanoid skull yet found in Chad (Borkou) is more than 1 million years old. Because in ancient times the Saharan area was not totally arid, Chads population was more evenly distributed than it is today. For example, 7,000 years ago, the north central basin, now in the Sahara, was still filled with water, and people lived and farmed around its shores. The cliff paintings in Borkou and Ennedi depict elephants, rhinoceri, giraffes, cattle, and camels; only camels survive there today. The region was known to traders and geographers from the late Middle Ages. Since then, Chad has served as a crossroads for the Muslim peoples of the desert and savanna regions and the animist Bantu tribes of the tropical forests. Sao people lived along the Chari River for thousands of years, but their relatively weak chiefdoms were overtaken by the powerful chiefs of what were to become the Kanem-Bornu and Baguirmi kingdoms. At their peak, these two ...

Assistance to Sudanese refugees in Chad. Continued fighting between Sudanese government forces and two rebel movements seeking autonomy for Darfur, keeps pushing more people over the border. UNHCR reported about 18,000 arrived last week, after Sudanese government forces, backed by Arab tribal militiamen on horseback, raided and burned 10 villages. The newly arrived refugees in Chad are being registered by UNHCR. Since Sunday, around 2,000 people have been registered in the villages of Kourbileke, Ogona and Kabrara.

In the present study, we addressed the principal issues raised over 5 years of routine usage of the Auto40 flow cytometers which had been implemented in 8 HIV monitoring laboratories throughout Chad. The installation and extended usage of a significant number of Auto40 flow cytometers in Chad also allowed us to assess the performance of these CD4 T cells counters in situations of actual use, across an entire country with harsh climatic conditions and a large geographical territory. This field approach is original, and complements the previous strictly biological evaluations of the analyzers in reference laboratories in Senegal [11], Cameroon [21, 22], as well as recently in Chad [23].. The analyzers were able to function properly regardless of the level of the laboratory, including in level-3 laboratories in health centers. They were even able to function properly in rooms partially exposed to the outside environment, which were not air conditioned, which had widespread dust, and in settings ...
Background: The CHADS(2) score (C, congestive heart failure [CHF]; H, hypertension [HT]; A, age ,= 75 y; D, diabetes mellitus; S-2, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack) is used to assess the risk of ischemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, its role in patients without documented AF is not well explored. Hypothesis: The goal of the current study was to explore if the incidence of hospitalization with first-ever AF after stroke increased with increasing CHADS(2) score. Methods: We identified 57 636 patients with nonfatal stroke and no documented AF in the Swedish Stroke Register (Riks-Stroke) during 2001-2004 and followed them for a mean of 2.2 years through record linkage to the Inpatient and Cause of Death registers. Cox regression hazard models were used to estimate the relative risk (RR) of new AF following stroke and its association with different CHADS(2) scores. Results: Overall, 2769 patients were hospitalized with new AF (4.8%, 21.7 per 1000 person-years). ...
Lake Chad in Africa spanned over 770,000 square miles in 50,000 B.C., according to Cameroon-based architecture firm Hermann Kamte & Associates (HKA). But over the centuries it has shrunk, dwindling to a mere 1,544 square miles in 2001. HKA hopes to use architecture to regenerate the dying lake, in the form of a desalination and research center called The Forgotten - Dead or Alive.|img src=http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/inhabitat/IvCU/~4/9Wd4rk2gEvk height=1 width=1 alt= /|
Chad is a centralized republic with a population of approximately 11 million. In 2006 President Idriss Deby Itno, leader of the Patriotic Salvation Movement (MPS), was elected to a third term in what unofficial observers characterized as an orderly but seriously flawed election boycotted by the opposition. Deby has ruled the country since taking power in a 1990 coup. The executive branch dominated the legislature and judiciary.. On January 15, the governments of Chad and Sudan signed an agreement to normalize relations. Both parties agreed to end the presence of and support for the others armed opposition groups in their respective territories. The governments also agreed to establish a joint force to patrol and monitor the shared border; the joint force was established in February. Hundreds of Chadian rebels who had been living in Sudan returned to the country during the year. The government withdrew support for the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and expelled JEM personnel, including ...
Chad looks set to become the 37th country in Africa to outlaw homosexuality after government ministers voted to make same-sex relations a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison.. The decision, yet to be ratified by the countrys president, was condemned by human rights groups as another setback in the struggle for gay rights on the continent. Chads penal code is more than half a century old and does not explicitly mention homosexuality.. But section 361 of a draft new code states the punishment for anyone who has sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex is 15 to 20 years in jail and a fine of 50,000-500,000 Central African francs (£60-£600), according to a document seen by Agence France-Presse.. The cabinet claims that the measure is intended to protect the family and to comply with Chadian society. It will go before MPs and President Idriss Déby to be rubber-stamped. Graeme Reid, director of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights programme at Human Rights Watch, ...

Downloadable! La pauvreté est une réalité très présente au Tchad dont la mesure dans une perspective multidimensionnelle est reconnue de plus en plus comme une nécessité à travers le monde. En se basant sur lapproche des capacités de Sen, lInitiative dOxford pour la pauvreté et le développement (OPHI) a identifié des dimensions de la qualité de vie qui sont jusque-là absentes ou peu considérées dans les enquêtes. Cette étude intègre les instruments de collecte de données sur les dimensions manquantes des données dans une enquête légère auprès des ménages de la ville de NDjaména. Une exploration des données collectées a permis de retenir huit dimensions représentées par douze indicateurs pour conduire une analyse de la pauvreté utilisant les mesures de Alkire et Foster (2009). Létude a montré que la contribution des privations sur les dimensions manquantes à la pauvreté est très importante : la précarité dans lemploi contribue à elle seule au 1/5 de la

In the present investigation we show that CHAD, a relatively abundant noncollagenous protein in cartilage extracellular matrix, interacts with β1 integrins on bovine chondrocytes. This interesting finding identifies CHAD as a candidate for mediating signals between the chondrocytes and the cartilage matrix.. CHAD is a member of the LRR protein family (35). Among other members in this family are the small cartilage proteoglycans biglycan, decorin, fibromodulin, and lumican. These proteoglycans are all known to interact with collagen (18, 41, 47), but it is not known if CHAD interacts with collagen or other matrix molecules.. Chondrocyte adhesion to CHAD was partially inhibited by a rat polyclonal antibody against β1 integrin. Species differences between cells and antibodies may explain why the inhibition was not total. Alternatively, other receptors than β1 integrins may also be involved in the adhesion to CHAD. We found that adhesion of chondrocytes to CHAD was dependent on Mg2+ or Mn2+ but ...

The Chadian phosphorus-manganese deposit occurs in the late Sinian Doushantuo Formation. The orebearing sequence consists of black phyllite, a phosphorite ore sequence, a manganese ore sequence, and dolostone. Phosphorite ores are divided into four types: psammitic, pelletal, micritic, and fine- grained crystalline phosphorites. The manganese ores, immediately overlying the phosphorite ores, consist of manganese carbonate (rhodochrosite) and P- bearing manganese oxide, both having pelletal and oolitic structures.Chemical analyses show that phosphorite ores contain from 7.6 to 14.1 percent P, 0.3 to 6.7 percent Mn, and 0.6 to 0.9 percent organic carbon; manganese ores contain 11.3 to 24.2 percent Mn, 0.1 to 5.7 percent P, and about 0.4 percent organic carbon.The occurrence and composition of the ore-bearing sequence indicate that phosphorite and manganese carbonate formed in a transition zone between reducing (euxinic) and slightly oxidizing depositional environments. Deposition in relatively ...
Since 2015, thousands of people in the Lake Chad region have been forced to flee their homes as a result of violent clashes between armed groups and Chadian military forces.

Tourism is minimal in Chad, one of Africas poorest countries. Two areas have recently been designated UNESCO World Heritage sites. We ask desert researcher Stefan Kröpelin how that status can benefit Chad.
The people of Chad speak more than 100 different languages and divide themselves into many ethnic groups. However, language and ethnicity are not the same. Moreover, neither element can be tied to a particular physical type.[1]. Although the possession of a common language shows that its speakers have lived together and have a common history, peoples also change languages. This is particularly so in Chad, where the openness of the terrain, marginal rainfall, frequent drought and famine, and low population densities have encouraged physical and linguistic mobility. Slave raids among[specify] non-Muslim peoples, internal slave trade, and exports of captives northward from the ninth to the twentieth centuries also have resulted in language changes. Anthropologists view ethnicity as being more than genetics. Like language, ethnicity implies a shared heritage, partly economic, where people of the same ethnic group may share a livelihood, and partly social, taking the form of shared ways of doing ...

A range of diseases afflicts the populace of Chad. In 1983 infectious and parasitic diseases were the most prevalent ailments, followed by respiratory afflictions and nervous disorders. In 1988 a severe epidemic of meningitis affected NDjamena, in particular. By 1987 only one case of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) had been reported to the World Health Organization; however, it was likely that incidence of the disease was many times higher, especially in the southern areas near Cameroon and Central African Republic. In the early 1960s, the government made a substantial effort to extend the countrys limited health infrastructure. Despite the ensuing civil conflict, the government has attempted to maintain and expand health services. Foreign assistance has allowed the construction of new buildings and the renovation of existing facilities, as well as the laying of groundwork for training health care professionals. By the early 1980s, health facilities included five hospitals (at ...

Introduction. The Human and Animal Health Unit at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, Basel, Switzerland, is a multidisciplinary research unit working with partner institutions in nine countries in Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Cöte dIvoire) and Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Vietnam). We focus on health research for mobile pastoralists and the control of zoonotic diseases in developing countries. Several of these diseases are emerging and many zoonotic diseases are also categorised as neglected diseases. Pastoralist populations in these countries are often marginalised by government healthcare systems because of the remote location of their camps and villages or high mobility (Schelling et al. 2010). Several of our studies have shown that the application of the one health concept is especially valuable in the settings of mobile pastoralism (Schwabe 1964). This review summarises the importance of one health for pastoralists in Africa.. The Sahel ecosystem and ...

LONDON (AP) - The World Health Organization says a new polio outbreak in Sudan is linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad - a week after the U.N. health agency declared the African continent free of the wild polio virus. In a statementthis week, WHO said two children in Sudan - one from South Darfur state and the other from Gedarif state, close to the border with Ethiopia and Eritrea - were paralyzed in March and April. Both had been recently vaccinated against polio. WHO said initial outbreak investigations show the cases are linked to an ongoing vaccine-derived outbreak in Chad that was first detected last year and is now spreading in Chad and Cameroon.. There is local circulation in Sudan and continued sharing of transmission with Chad, the U.N. agency said, adding that genetic sequencing confirmed numerous introductions of the virus into Sudan from Chad.. WHO said it had found 11 additional vaccine-derived polio cases in Sudan and that the virus had also been identified in ...

On April 20, after clashes that pitted the Chadian national army against rebels in the Kanem region of northern Chad, the countrys President Idriss Déby was killed. Déby, a larger than life figure that had ruled the country for over three decades, had flown to northern Chad to visit his troops at the military frontline.. With his death, France-Chads former colonial power-lost one of its closest allies in the Sahel, an arid, underdeveloped area stretching from Senegal to Sudan where jihadists have thrived on surrounding states governance failures. At his funeral on April 23, French President Emmanuel Macron declared: We will not let anybody put into question or threaten Chads stability and territorial integrity. This comes as no surprise. France had been buttressing Débys rule ever since it supported the coup détat which brought him to power in 1990.. French troops, reconnaissance aircraft, and warplanes were often deployed to support Déby whenever rebels and opposition groups ...

A special type of tree could facilitate peacebuilding in the Sahel. A stretch of semi-arid land south of the Sahara that runs from the Red Sea to the Atlantic Ocean through 10 countries (Eritrea, Sudan, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Mali, Algeria, Mauritania, and Senegal). But the western subregion covering the Lake Chad area (the intersection of Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Niger) and Liptako-Gourma (the tri-border zone of Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger) in the Sahel has been the scene of a growing humanitarian crisis. Armed groups are terrorizing local populations. Rampant insecurity has forced 1 million people to flee their homes. People have been cut off from their livelihoods. Food insecurity is worsening. Casualties continue to mount. And climate change will likely exacerbate conditions, forcing more people to compete for depleted forest resources and land. More food shortages and instability will surely follow.. ...

One of these stories was his involvement in the war against Chad. Al-Qaddafi decided to get involved in a civil war in neighboring Chad, and actually did occupy part of this country as if he need more land (Libya is the 17th largest country in the world). One day he told high school students in Libya they were going on a field trip. He sent buses to their schools, gave them guns and sent them to fight in Chad. Thousands of Libyans died and got injured in a brutal war in 1986. Qaddafi claimed a decisive victory in Chad initially, but when he suffered a bad defeat he went on Libyan TV to criticize the stupid military that decided on its own to get involved in this war. He didnt want Libyans to see those who were wounded with visible injuries such as head injuries or amputations, so he ordered the military to kill those injured. Yes thats right, he ordered the silent execution of those Libyan civilians and soldiers who were forced to fight in an unnecessary war against their will and were ...

Each year the number of children we see goes up, says Mahamat Abacar, health focal point at Mao hospital in northern Chad. In 2010 there were around 800 serious cases, last year 3,900, and this year already weve treated over 2,000 babies. In the grounds of the hospital, tents are being erected in the sand to make room for the expected influx of new admissions as the effects of drought across the Sahel start to be felt. An estimated 127,000 people are already classed as malnourished in Chad following poor rains, insect infestations and a sudden drop in wages sent home from Chadians working in Libya. We have 50 nutritional centres in the region, Abacar says. If the children have a very serious condition, they come here for intensive support. It usually takes a week or so for them to be in a stable enough position to go home and then they will be monitored every week by a local or mobile clinic.. Asked about the reasons for this years rise in numbers he cites the poor rains, insects and ...
UN News Center, April 27, 2004). The UN Integrated Regional Information Networks reports today:. More refugees continue to arrive at Tolom daily [the north-central sector of the UN refugee camps]. Everyday new people are coming on foot, on donkeys, in convoys, Alfred Demotibaye the Tolom camp manager, who works for the Chadian branch of Caritas, told IRIN. (UN Integrated Regional Information Networks, May 3, 2004). ******************. The response of the international community, both to the humanitarian crisis and to the genocidal ambitions that have created this crisis, remains disgracefully inadequate. Instead of speaking with urgency and focus about the nature of the humanitarian intervention that is so clearly required, both the UN and the Western democracies continue to speak as if there is still time to avert catastrophe. To be sure, their pronouncements are not without some accuracy:. The United Nations warned today that the crisis in Darfur, western Sudan, will worsen dramatically ...
Pastoralists living in the rural study villages near Ruaha National Park face challenges common to pastoralists in other regions of sub-Saharan Africa, including lack of livestock health services, pasture and water scarcity, and limited access to livestock markets (e.g. Lybbert et al. 2004; Mosalagae and Magotsi 2013). Livestock disease was identified as a limiting factor to pastoralist livestock production and herd sustainability at multiple stakeholder levels, but some disease priorities differ among pastoralists, government extension officers, and veterinary officials responsible for disease surveillance and services at broader geographic levels. The combination of disease and decreased access to pasture and water resources represents a significant threat to the pastoralist system in the Ruaha landscape. In the face of climate variability and landscape change, targeted livestock health education for pastoralists and extension officers was identified as a common pathway for improving herd ...

BACKGROUND:Viral genetic variability presents a major challenge to the development of a prophylactic hepatitis C virus (HCV) vaccine. A promising HCV vaccine using chimpanzee adenoviral vectors (ChAd) encoding a genotype (gt) 1b non-structural protein (ChAd-Gt1b-NS) generated high magnitude T cell responses. However, these T cells showed reduced cross-recognition of dominant epitope variants and the vaccine has recently been shown to be ineffective at preventing chronic HCV. To address the challenge of viral diversity, we developed ChAd vaccines encoding HCV genomic sequences that are conserved between all major HCV genotypes and adjuvanted by truncated shark invariant chain (sIitr). METHODS:Age-matched female mice were immunised intramuscularly with ChAd (108 infectious units) encoding gt-1 and -3 (ChAd-Gt1/3) or gt-1 to -6 (ChAd-Gt1-6) conserved segments spanning the HCV proteome, or gt-1b (ChAd-Gt1b-NS control), with immunogenicity assessed 14-days post-vaccination. RESULTS:Conserved segment vaccines
John Nicholas Brown The Brown family has played too conspicuous and important a part in the life of Rhode Island from the very founding of the colony to the present day to require introduction to the readers of the history of the State. The late John Nicholas Brown, for several decades one of the foremost figures in financial and official circles in Rhode Island, was a descendant in the eighth American generation of the Rev. Chad Brown. (I) Rev. Chad Brown, immigrant ancestor and founder of the family, came from England in the ship Martin, which arrived in Boston, in the Massachusetts Colony, in July, 1638. He brought with him his wife Elizabeth, son John, then eight years old, and perhaps younger children. A fellow passenger died on the voyage, and Chad Brown witnessed the will soon after his arrival. He did not remain long in the Massachusetts Colony, probably because of his religious views, but soon removed to Providence, where he became at once a leader and one of the most valued citizens of ...

Abd ar-Rahman Gaourang II (also Gaorang or Gwaranga c. 1858 - 1918) was Mbang of Bagirmi from 1885 to 1918. He came to power at a time when the sultanate was in terminal decline, subject to both Wadai and Bornu. The Sudanese warlord Rabih az-Zubayr made him his vassal in 1893. Gaourang signed a treaty that made his sultanate a French protectorate in 1897. After the final defeat of Rabih in 1900 he ruled as a subordinate of the French in Chad until his death in 1918. The sultanate of Bagirmi was on the east bank of the Chari to the south of Lake Chad. In the 19th century Bagirmi, once a province of the Bornu Empire to the northwest, was now disputed between Bornu and the Wadai Empire to the northeast. The sultanate at this time was rapidly losing power. It paid tribute, mainly in slaves, to either Bornu or Wadai, or sometimes to both. The main source of income for the people of Bagirmi was slave raiding among the Sara people to the south. Abd ar-Rahman Gaourang was born to the Bagirmi ruling ...

Background. Before his death at the hands of government military forces in North Kordofan in 2011, Khalil Ibrahim was the leader of the Justice and Equality Movement, probably the most coherent of the various rebel factions in Darfur.. He was born in the village of Tine on the border between Chad and Sudan, and like the Chadian president and erstwhile JEM-backer Idris Deby, hailed from the Zaghawa ethnic group (although Khalil is a Zaghawa Kobe and Deby a Zaghawa Bideyat).. Education. Khalil, who was related to many of the Sultans of the Zaghawa Kobe, travelled to the big towns to complete his education, studying at al-Fashir secondary school and then obtaining a degree in medicine from al-Jazira university in central Sudan in 1984. Like many Darfuris isolated by the secular ways of urban Sudan, he joined the Islamic Movements student wing (The Islamic Way, or al-Ittijah al-Islami) during his secondary school years.. Khalil first joined the government in 1989 directly after Omar al-Bashirs ...
Twenty-one years after his overthrow and flight to Senegal, the former Chadian dictator Hissène Habré may finally face trial for brutality against his own people. On Tuesday, July 24, four days after the world court in The Hague ruled that Senegal must bring Habré to justice, Senegal and the African Union agreed on a plan for a special court to try Habré. Senegals new president, Macky Sall, says he wants proceedings to begin later this year.. If the case does go forward, it would mark a significant reversal of fortune for Habré and his victims. Despite being accused of thousands of political killings and systematic torture during his 1982-1990 reign, Habré has basked in two seaside villas in Dakar, using the millions he allegedly stole from Chad to build a network of supporters in Senegal.. A Senegalese judge indicted Habré in 2000 on atrocity charges, but former president Abdoulaye Wade found one pretext after another to delay Habrés reckoning, turning his victims saga into what the ...
The Sahelian goat is a breed of goat from West Africa, used mainly for meat and skin production. It is also known by some other names such as Cheèvre bariolée, Fulani, Gorane, Nioro, Niafounké, Sahélienne, Sahel, and West African Longlegged. The Sahelian goat belongs to the Savanna group of goats with many types and subtypes raised in the Saharan and sub-Saharan region. Sahelian type of goat is distributed in north and northwest of Mali. The Sahelian goat is most suited to desert or semidesert environments and is intolerant of areas with high humidity. The breed is widely distributed in the arid and semiarid zones of the Sahel, north of 12°N from central Chad in the east to the Atlantic coast in the west and well into the southern Sahara. This is the most suitable place, where most of the worlds Sahelian goats are found, although some numbers of this goat breed can also be found elsewhere in the world, especially in such areas where suitable environments or conditions are available, such ...
Downloadable! Poverty has increased during the 90s overall as well as in rural and urban areas, after experiencing downward trends during the 80s. Besides, the gap between rural and urban poverty has also widened. The recent estimates show that more than one-third of our population lives in extreme poverty, and around 70% of these unfortunate people reside in rural areas. The results based on agro-ecological divisions of the country indicate that poverty is lowest in the barani areas of the Punjab because of better opportunities in terms of employment in other sectors, particularly, the services sector as well as overseas migration. The highest is observed in Balochistan may be due to nonavailability of irrigation water and low rainfall making dwellers more vulnerable to droughts seriously affecting the crops and the livestock which are the main sources of their livelihood. Poverty is widely spread in irrigated areas of the country particularly in Southern Punjab and Sindh where feudal system still
Decades of drought in central Africa may have had a surprising cause, according to new research that challenges the notion that the severe dry weather was triggered mainly by bad agricultural practices and overgrazing.. The research, done at the University of Washington, shows that the drought was at least partially caused by pollution in the Northern Hemisphere.. The researchers said that sulfate-laden aerosols coming from coal-burning factories from the 1960s through the 1980s actually slowed warming in the Northern Hemisphere compared to the Southern Hemisphere. This shifted tropical rain bands south, away from the Sahel region, and led ultimately to the near drying up of Lake Chad, which is used to water crops in surrounding areas.. Africas Sahel regionAfricas Sahel region We think people should know that these particles not only pollute air locally, but they also have these remote climate effects, said the studys lead author, Yen-Ting Hwang, a University of Washington doctoral student ...
